The 7 Funniest Moments from the Game of Thrones Premiere

We know that Game of Thrones is funny sometimes, but the Season 7 premiere was even funnier than usual. There were lol-worthy moments every few minutes. But these were by far the biggest laughs of the night, ranked from guffaw to titter.

1. Sam's doo-doo montage


Did the Farrelly Brothers direct this scene? GoT engaged in some straight-up gross-out humor during this interminable montage of Sam (John Bradley) cleaning chamber pots and serving food indistinguishable from what's in the chamber pots. It probably set the record for most floating turds ever seen on TV. We were gagging and giggling at this entire sequence.

2. The Hound roasting Thoros of Myr


They could have stayed warm from the heat generated by the Hound's (Rory McCan) burns! The fully-alive Clegane brother spoke the thoughts everyone feels about dudes with top knots when he went in on Thoros of Myr's (Paul Kaye) dopey hairstyle. His wit is as sharp as his sword.

3. Smooth Tormund


We've said it before and we'll say it again: every time Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) looks at Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) is hysterical. He did it again in this episode, approaching herwith a goofy grin and even goofier swagger.

4. "Be a good lad, clean this up"

Jim Broadbent is the man.

5. Arya's dramatic irony


In the opening scene, when Arya (Maisie Williams) is impersonating Walder Frey (David Bradley), she salutes the gathered Frey kin for slaughtering their guests after inviting them into their home. The layers of irony -- Arya praising these heinous acts while secretly reviling them (plus, by this point we knew all these dudes were about to get poisoned) -- were as delicious as your own sons in a pie.

6. Euron talkin' trash

The new and improved Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) has more beard, more eyeliner and more attitude, and he showed that off by getting in some harsh digs at Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) while proposing marriage to Cersei (Lena Headey). That "two good hands" crack was ice cold.

7. Ed Sheeran's corny cameo


Taylor Swift's buddy's cameo wasn't funny in and of itself, but the reaction to Ed Sheeran's unwanted, stunty appearance was hilarious.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.

I clicked on here just to leave another useless rant (at least it allows me to vent) about this clickbait hack Liam, who has to be the worst writer/editor on the planet. I'm not sure why I bother anymore though, out of the 15 comments this garbage drew, 11 of them were spam posts.
But, since I'm already here...
What kind of idiot editor has a writer who does the best GoT reviews on the internet, that used to generate well over 1000 comments, write about supernatural, while he provides shit like this, and a few other clickbait articles about the most popular show on TV right now? I mean, it just takes a really generational type of moron to run a site this ineptly. No wonder TV Guide went from being a household name, to the irrelevant garbage peddler it is right now.

I thought it was quite funny that after having to put up with all that stuff, Sam eventually managed to sneak out some of the books. And what did he discover? Something he already knew!

Lyanna Mormont's dialogue with Lord Glover was funny to me. That little girl will tell Bedtime when to go to sleep LOL!
